A Room With a View

For my daughters 9th birthday she requested a room "re do".  Well her exact words were more something like "mommy, why did you make my room so pink!?" How tweeny of her!

This is the mood board I've created inspiring the redo.   Whenever I have a big project like this, I first pick a print or color theme that I love to create a road map for the room.  Next you can layer on fun accents to pull together elements from your road map to make it cohesive.  In this case my inspiration(road map) was the floral print sheets (I've featured it here as my background).  I pulled out the purple, aqua and white as my accent colors and layered in dots everywhere for added dimension and whimsy.

I must admit no project is fun without a great gal pal to play with!  My partner in crime for this project is my  SUPER creative friend Julie.  She is great with design and color, and no job is too big or too small for her! (Stay tuned for our inspiration for my next big project....My son's Bar Mitzvah)!

If you have a design project in the Bay Area you'd like help with you can email her at

Check back sometime in June for the "big reveal" and get my little darling's reaction.
